The two visit the police station and vouch for Hiyori’s innocence, which helps calm Hiyori’s nerves. After one of the detectives, Tsukino, lets Haruka and the others in to give her support during the interrogation, Hiyori explains how she had tried to get her friend to stop spreading rumors about Haruka, only to discover she had been attacked and be accused of the crime herself. Not wanting Hiyori to suffer because of her anymore, Haruka decides to tell the detectives what she knows. Despite convincing the detective of her ability, he reveals he cannot let Hiyori free until they find tangible evidence, leading to Yuriko to bring up her mother. Feeling they can’t rely on the police, Yuriko decides they should find the true culprit themselves.
